Rich, creamy, indulgent… this Chocolate Pots de Creme recipe is simply the perfect Valentine’s Day treat!
Pot de Creme (pronounced poh-de-krem) is french for “pot of cream” or “pot of custard”.
This seemingly fancy dessert is quite easy to make at home and is a simply incredible chocolate treat!
Pot de creme is similar to chocolate pudding, but a bit richer and a bit thicker.
One of my favorite things about this dessert is that it can be made in advance (in fact it must be) and kept in the fridge until serving. So it’s perfect to make early in the day (or the day before serving) and then it’s ready to be enjoyed after dinner, with no last minute prep.
PIN IT NOW to save for later!
I created this recipe in partnership with Sprouts Farmers Market.
Sprouts carries all of the high quality ingredients you’ll need for this delicious recipe.
This recipe has a quite short list of ingredients and is designed to highlight the chocolate, so choosing good quality chocolate is key! I chose 65% Cocoa Colombian Dark Chocolate, available in Sprouts bulk bin section.
I added a bit of extra chopped chocolate on the top of the desserts as garnish, but feel free to dress the desserts as you wish.
Sprouts always has a fun selection of seasonal candies, so look for their seasonal display (near the bulk bins) and you’re sure to find something to add as a pretty garnish.
